The invention of zero in mathematics, and its use in place values in numbers was a great advance.
For example, lets see your versions of 1.000 1,000,000 1,000,000,000 and so on without any zero digits.
And lets see you do some long divisions or long multiplications, or long squarerootings with your zeroless notation.
I see no benefit it doing away with it and any number of problems with it.
